Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Installs fine. Nearly everything works, besides some issues- RAW editing, standard bill-of-fare editing, brushes, stamps, fills, etc. There are some bugs and workarounds needed.
What does not
Graphical tearing, nothing critical.
What was not tested
Make sure to disable "Alt+click" to click and drag windows; otherwise, you will not be able to utilize tools such as the healing or stamp tool. This can be done via dconf-editor.
Also, you need to allocate at least 512 MB of Video Memory to Wine via the command: "winetricks videomemorysize=512". Otherwise, editing large files and layers will crash Wine.
Adobe Photo Deluxe

Yes, I'm still using that dinosaur Adobe program, even with Windows 10. I'd like to use it on Linux. I've tried two different times (Linux Mint 16 and 17) and at the time WINE just wasn't enough. The program would start to open, but would hang and not operate. Any chance the progress where modern PhotoShop is concerned would apply to MY program, "Adobe Photo Deluxe Business Edition"?
I'd happily return to using Linux and WINE again. This was the only thing that stopped me.
PS CS6 on Wine 1.8
by Richard Baláž on Tuesday December 22nd 2015, 9:26
I had problems with installation since it always failed. I was experiencing similar problems after installation.
This winetricks line helped to install & to launch:
$ winetricks -q atmlib gdiplus msxml3 msxml6 vcrun2005 vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 ie6 fontsmooth-rgb gecko
After that I was able to launch successfully only 32-bit version.
PS works quite good, but drawing tools are still not working properly. And that's sad. Also, after first start PS noticed me that something is wrong with graphics acceleration (I have Intel HD 4400). But other things seems to be working and it is stable.
Brush DOTS workaround

Currently running Photoshop CS6 under Wine 1.7.34 on Mint.
I too have experienced issues where some tools will not properly draw when holding the mouse down. Sometimes I can draw squiggles, sometimes it's just a dot.
Thankfully I found a workaround to this issue in tool options.
Simply turn off 'Spacing' for each drawing tool (Brush, Eraser, Pencil, etc). After that, dots should be no more.

I installed Photoshop in a 32-Bit-Wineprefix and it's working very fine at the first sight, even without the described installer problem (it said "Installation successful" just as it should).
One thing I notice: The floating values around the mouse pointer when moving or resizing an element or the selection always stays the same values as they were when showing up (most of the time something around zero, like 5px or 7px, depends on how fast I move the selection before it shows up).
I think this has to be considered as a normal inconvenience of using a Windows App in Wine, but maybe someone knows a trick if there is any.
